Work has just started on two new access improvement projects in Clackmannanshire, which will help people get closer to the wildlife and wild places on their doorstep. Local people and visitors to Cambus and Black Devon Wetlands are set to benefit from an investment of £116,000 through IFLI to improve path network links. The projects are a partnership between Central Scotland Green Network Trust (CSGNT), Inner Forth Landscape Initiative (IFLI) and Clackmannanshire Council, and are both due for completion in the spring
The Cambus Whisky & Wetland Wanders project will upgrade the existing path network around Cambus which links the eclectic mix of wild and industrial landscape and connects local people to the Forth estuary. The scheme will create over a kilometre of new paths, as well as new linking sections created where required. New seating and signage will also be installed.
The second project – Walk to the Wetlands - will take advantage of the fantastic wildlife resource on the doorstep of local people in the area around Black Devon Wetlands between Alloa and Clackmannan. The work aims to provide a comprehensive path network to access the Inner Forth landscape, and will also link with the new RSPB Black Devon Wetlands Nature Reserve. A kilometre of new paths are being installed, and a further 500 metres will be upgraded. Signage and waymarking will help people discover the new routes.
